January is a time to revamp our look (new year new…) and the month of detoxing – including our skin! I know it can be hard to venture out from the products we know and love, but our skin needs different products during different times of the year. If you think your skincare regime is due for a well-deserved fresh start then check out my top skincare and beauty favourites.
Dry Eye Concealer contains Biolin® which floods dry, damaged skin with flora to help repair the skin barrier and seal in moisture. It not only conceals with a skin tone tint but also contains light reflecting particles to help brighten and illuminate the under eye area. Perfect as a go to before your big night out, or simply to prep yourself for the long day ahead!
